History

Metro Blind Sport was founded in 1973 by an inspirational group of young blind and partially sighted people who were not prepared to accept the expectations and restrictions of the day – chess and country walks were not enough for them! Metro is determined to keep alive this spirit of adventure, challenging barriers and opening doors to all sports for its members.
